Review based on Saturn version Final Words: If you owned a Sega Saturn, you must have had this game... Especially since it was given out completely FREE by mail if you were a registered Saturn owner in the US.
Though a good home console fighting game at the time, Virtua Fighter was nearly two years old, and looked considerably aged even though the graphics had significantly improved from the original version. ~TFG Webmaster
REVIEW: Virtua Fighter Remix is basically a port of the original arcade version of Virtua Fighter for the Sega Saturn. The graphics were updated slightly, which improved textures and character models (now with a higher polygon count). There were also several new modes to choose from. Other than the updated graphics, the game engine is the same as the classic arcade title.
New selection screen artwork... not bad!
An improved appearance, but the same gameplay experience.
